Steffen Marx, Mammoet Germany Ludwigshafen branch manager said, ""We ordered the Explorer 5500 with a 60-meter boom and a fly jib. This will prove to be — indirectly — advantageous during our work at BASF’s facilities, where we will often have to lift loads high or over obstacles with very limited space."

Head of crane operations Hans-Werner Springstein added, "The single-engine design also played an important part in our decision. The Explorer is the first crane with only one engine in our fleet. It saves fuel, reduces weight, and lowers maintenance costs. All in all, this means that the crane really pays for itself, especially when it comes to long projects,"
